Phablets are a growing breed of mobile devices incorporating both a smartphone and a tablet computer in a single compact package (phone + tablet = phablet).
Smartphones take on more and more computer-like capabilities (viewing news, sports, photos, movies, taking photos and videos, and the like), there’s an increasing desire for screens with a larger display size and higher resolution. Combine this with the increasing number of users who want to “go mobile” with tablet computers, and you have the need for a more compact tablet computer. Since display sizes for smartphones are typically three to five inches and for tablet computers seven to ten inches, there’s a “gap” in the five- to seven-inch size. Enter a combined device: the phablet.
Several phablets are on the market, but one new arrival has attracted a lot of attention. Of course we had to check it out, and here’s what we found:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, an Android phablet, is a marvel of compact technology measuring 6 inches high, 3.1 inches wide, and a super slim 0.33 inches thick. The display measures 5.7 inches diagonally and uses AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) screen technology for a bright, crisp view at a full HD resolution of 1290 by 1080 (385 ppi).
